Aging brings with it biological, psychological, cognitive, and social changes. Older adults, however, are not a one-size-fits-all group. The experience of aging varies from person to person, but from the perspective of the ecology of aging, older adulthood is a phase in life greatly influenced by the physical environment. It’s these surroundings that can pose significant challenges but can also increase opportunities, and while the impact of artwork is often discounted as a component of the environment, it exerts influence on the individuals who inhabit senior living communities.
Care and consideration in its selection and placement in independent senior living can contribute to a positive environment that responds to the changes that come with age while offering community and connection.
Developing an art program for memory care offers a wonderful opportunity to delve more deeply into the history and culture of a local area to find those places that are relevant and meaningful across generations – creating a setting that helps forge connections between those with cognitive challenges and their carers and visitors.
Beautiful nature, local, and regional artworks remove barriers between seniors in assisted living settings dealing with mobility issues and the world they wish to stay connected to.
We at Great American Art pay close attention to the diverse needs of art for these increasingly diverse communities; from independent living to assisted living to memory care, and the variety of niche communities in between. Our focus is to create a unique environment for the community you serve, turning a ‘space’ into a ‘place’.
